Happy weekend, dear gals! I’m thankful you’ve dropped in for a little style inspiration. Today I’m keeping it real real and sharing How I Really Dressed for My Day this week.
You know that I know that you know that I don’t always dress the way I do in my style posts. Right? I do indeed wear many of those outfits at some time or another. Then again, I actually return or pass on to someone else quite a few of the items you see styled here, not because I don’t love them all but because I don’t need them all. My mama taught me better!
But today I’m sharing mirror selfies (mostly) of outfits I really did wear in the last week…hmm, week and a half…or so. These are photos I took before dashing out the door or into my home office to buckle down to work. So these are where the rubber meets the road kinda styles.
I always set out trying to remember exactly what day I wore what…but alas, I’m over 50 y’all. I don’t remember what day it is today! But I can generally share what I was doing the day I wore each outfit.
Outfit #1 – Church
I do know that I wore these white dress ankle pants and sleeveless shirt to church two weeks ago. We keep it pretty casual at our church, but a girl just wants to dress up occasionally.
I’m wearing the curvy fit in the pants, but in my regular size 8. I’m also wearing an 8 in the top and it fits TTS. The sandals are not reduced in price yet, but the white version is almost half off. And the bucket bag is reduced by well over 50%.
That afternoon I simply slipped into these black shorts (40% off with code HELLO40). I’m really enjoying these shorts as well as the black gingham ones of the same style (40% off with code HELLO40).
Outfit #2 – Church
Ok, so I’m skipping on to the next Sunday when I wore these seersucker shorts with a white tee and my white linen blazer.
I really liked the way this mostly monochromatic look came together. The cool seersucker shorts add just a tad of color and the gold shoes add a little shine. Other than that, white! Everything here runs TTS. And the shorts (I purchased them last year, but they’re still available) are 40% off with code HELLO40.
Outfit #3 – Monday Working and Outings
I do know that I wore this outfit on Monday because that day’s Dressed for My Day Challenge was to wear one item from Sunday’s outfit styled in a totally different way. So I styled the seersucker shorts with a lot more color.
Monday I styled the seersucker shorts with the solid magenta sleeveless shirt and my denim jacket. I decided to use caramel leather accessories to give the outfit a more casual vibe than the day before’s. By the way, my denim jacket is a medium.
These platform wedge sandals continue to amaze me with how comfortable they are. This week a reader asked me to rate the comfort on a scale of 0-10. I give them an 8 simply because they are heels. High heels. But for heels, they’re very comfortable. They run true to size.
Outfit #4 – Work from Home & Errands
Most of what I wore on this day when I worked from home was from last year. But these white shorts are new and I love them. These City Shorts have a 4 1/2″ inseam and a very dressy feel to them. They’re a nice weight and dressy fabric.
Outfit #5 – Coffee with Gals & Work from Home
I do know I wore this comfy midi skirt to coffee with the gals Thursday. This skirt is so easy to throw on with any of my solid colored tees and sandals. I’m wearing a small in the skirt, for reference. The tees run true to size.
Outfit #6 – Work from Home
I’m pretty sure I got out a little the day I wore these cargo pants and my girls’ trip tee, but I mostly worked from home. After all, that’s mostly what I do every day!
I recently acquired another pair of these comfortable and contemporary cargo pants in the flax color. They’re that comfortable and wearable! They run true to size.
My gold sandals are from last year, but I found some similar ones. I wear them constantly!!
Outfit #7 – Work from Home & Hairdresser
Sometimes simple is the best. I love, love, love this look and the way this feels on. I’ve had these jeans for a few years now, but they’re still available. The tee is new – oh, so soft! And it’s available in other colors and solids. I’m wearing a small.
Friday’s challenge was to wear jeans or denim shorts but in a new way. There’s nothing all that “new” about this style, but honestly it’s a look I don’t wear nearly as often as I would like. I hadn’t worn these girlfriend jeans in a couple of months. Plus the tee is new!
Outfit #8 – Saturday’s Dressed for My Day Challenge
Ok, so I cheated on this one. This is a photo I took yesterday when I was getting dressed and then I remembered the Dressed for My Day Challenge. Yesterday was jeans and today’s challenge is to wear a dress…even though it’s Saturday and you may just be hanging around the house. You know there really is a dress out there for every occasion – even traveling or hiking!
So I took this off yesterday and am wearing it today. Yep, I’m just working around the house and running errands. But I think this is casual enough.
My only regret is that this dress is a tad too big. I have the medium, but I wish I had the small. But since I belt it I guess it doesn’t matter much. It’s lined with a black fabric, so you don’t have to worry about it being too sheer. So fun to wear!
So there you have it! That’s how I really dressed for my day this past week or so. If you have any questions, please let me know.
You can still join us for the Dressed for My Day Challenge. It’s not too late. We’re keeping it very flexible. And boy, are we having fun!?! Some gals are checking in through the comments here, a few are posting on Instagram, but most are participating through the Dressed for My Day Challenge private Facebook group. I’d love for you to join us. If nothing else, it’s a way for me to really get to know my readers so I can serve you gals even better. I’m loving it!
Have a great weekend, ladies. I’ll see you again here on Monday!
Blessed for My Day
God transcends time. He was and is and will always be. Why should that make a mark on our hearts? Because we can trust that God does not change, nor is He affected by the times of man.
Time takes a toll on us, you know. It ages us, yes. But it also wears us down, causes us to lose hope, changes our hearts and minds. People change and relationships evolve. We never really know what tomorrow holds. But we can know who holds tomorrow. He never changes and He never resorts to plan B. Time doesn’t take a toll on God. It is simply the instrument by which He allows us to measure our days. Nothing more.
Today be assured that you serve an everlasting God. He is on His throne. Keep the faith. Persevere. He’s got this.
Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. ~ Psalm 90:2,4
